Obscuring the images of Confederate generals in a black shroud is a good start, but area residents opposed to the statues of Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson in Charlottesville say it’s a matter of time before they come down.The lingering debate over the fate of the statues in two downtown parks has been met with calls on social media and in public meetings for residents to pull the statues down if the city doesn’t remove them.“When your city government doesn’t listen to you, you...
When the sun finally broke through the clouds, it was obscured by the moon, but the soaked and bedraggled people remaining in Emancipation Park could not have been happier.Mother probably told you not to look at the sun, but on Monday that’s where the fun was, at least until a summer storm sent hundreds of eclipse-viewers scurrying away from the downtown park.Those who stayed through the pouring rain, however, were treated to the area’s first solar eclipse in 38 years.“It was definitely...
When Nazi marchers came straight down Market Street face-to-face with counter-protesters, members of the Three Percenters militia knew it would be no picnic in the park.“We knew where the entrance would be [in the back of the park],” said C.J. Ross, of Amherst, a Three Percenter.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
